“Elihu continued and said.
‘Do you think this to be just?
‘I am in the right before God.’
If you ask?
‘What advantage do I have?
How am I better off than if I had sinned?’
I will answer you
And your friends with you.”
Elihu was going to explain why it was better for Job to admit that he was a sinner. He wanted to show the difference between proclaiming that he was just and that of admitting that he had sinned. He was going to explain it to Job and his 3 friends that it was better to admit to sinning rather than proclaiming his righteous.
